At the time, he was valued to be one of the most valuable players of the club, with €1 million (±R15,4 million) put on him.
Themba had an amazing season, which saw him clinch the PSL Player’s Player of the season, PSL Footballer Of the Season, and Sundowns’s players player of the season, among others, in 2019/2020 season.

The car is said to be worth R2.2 million.

He Has Kept His Expensive Home A Secret
Themba Zwane is one of the most down-to-earth players in the entire PSL. Unlike many others, he does not splash the things he owns on social media, neither does he make any noise about it.
